How Is a Breast Augmentation Performed in Santa Clarita?

Your breast augmentation procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Hu offers four incision options:

  • Periareolar (around the edge of the nipple)
  • Inframammary (under the breast)
  • Transaxillary (through the armpit)
  • Transumbilical (through the belly button, done endoscopically)

The type of incision you require will depend on the type of implant you choose and the amount of breast tissue you have. Dr. Hu will discuss the various incision options with you ahead of time to ensure you know what to expect during surgery.

Your implants may be placed underneath the muscle (submuscular) or over the muscle (subglandular). Dr. Hu will create a pocket either under or over the muscle, and then place your implant inside of it. Your internal tissues will then be stitched together tightly, helping to “lift” the breasts while at the same time securing the implant. After that, your incision is sewn or stapled shut, and then you will be taken to a recovery room so that medical personnel can monitor you for complications.
